BMW unveils new electric iX3 concept

Blue accents - a common trait across BMW's i3 and i8 models - appear across the vehicle, contrasting with the matte Moonstone Silver paint finish.

Finished in a striking matt Moonstone Silver, by far the most interesting aspects of the X3-derived design of the concept are the details, such as its conjoined, blue-accented version of the iconic "double-kidney" grille.

BMW has made significant progress in powertrain development, culminating in the fifth-generation eDrive electric system. The operating area, poundage, packaging space, and flexibility come courtesy of the fresh introduction of new technologies too.

The BMW Brilliance Automotive joint venture will produce the future series-production version of the BMW Concept iX3 in Shenyang, China. The transfer of the drive system technology originally developed for BMW i cars into vehicles from the BMW Group's core brands is entering a new dimension here.

The design of the electric vehicle reminiscent of the X3.

Lighter alloy wheels feature, and help to aid efficiency, resulting in the iX3 having an electric range of 249 miles - a mile more than Audi's new e-tron electric SUV.

Aesthetically, the iX3 is immediately recognisable as a BMW X model. The electric motor, transmission and power electronics are now grouped into a single component, making it much easier to integrate them into different vehicle architectures. Another notable element is that the electric motor does not need any rare earths, which means the BMW Group is not dependent on their availability. Meanwhile, BMW has also promised a non-SUV i4 model for the same year - it's rumoured to take design cues from the Vision Dynamics concept that was shown at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show. BMW says that when the EV is charged with a fast-charging station providing 150 kW the battery pack can charge fully in 30 minutes.
